Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) recently introduced the UMT UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) Mission Trainer.
UAV are an important element in the modern battlefield in the air, ground and sea, in the tactical as well as strategic levels. In order to meet the growing need for UAV high-capability simulators the UMT was developed. UMT addresses the needs of UAV operational personnel (pilots, observers, payload operators and external pilots) at all training stages. As such, it provides team and multi-team training as well as inherent brief, debrief and trainees management capabilities.
UMT is designed to enable the operator in training to control the UAV flight as well as operate its systems in a professional manner. UMT systems simulate operational scenarios in which a separate or coordinated operation is required as well as control of various payloads, changing targets and extreme weather conditions.
Various avionics and payload modules are integrated in UMT’s design with off-the-shelf commercial systems and specially developed IAI’s products, including the unique IOS (Instructor Operating Station). UMT’s architecture is based on modular components that can be replaced and upgraded. It allows connection to other HLA based trainers and execution of multi-training scenarios.
IAI develops UMT simulation systems tailored for specific customer requirements. UMT enables training for a variety of UAVs by different manufacturers.
